Read the following poem carefully and answer the questions which follow it.
|My child-eyes cried for chocolate treats
And sticky sweets
‘Twill rot yu’ teet’!
|Tinkly silver wrapper hides|
How can a child eye see?
|This child-heart cried for mid-teen love|
|10||A blow, a shove
Study yuh’ book!
Are not the most sought-after truths
|15||How can a child’s heart know?
So watch the young girl’s heart take wing!
Watch her groove
And watch her swing
She’s old enough
|20||She’s strong and tough
She’ll see beneath the silver wrapper
Beneath the flashy football boots
She’ll find the great sought-after truth
That child-eye tears are not as sad
|25||And child-heart pain is not as bad
As grown-up tears and grown-up pain
Oh Christ, what do we have to gain
From growing up
For throwing up
Our childlike ways
